                 this date there will be activation from the OZ90HQ
                 station exclusively. After this day the HQ station will
                 go back to the original call sign OZ1HQ.

  All bands, including WARC-bands, and all modes may be used. Exceptions
are cross-mode, cross-band contacts and contacts via repeater and echo-link.
On JT modes the callsign OZ7D will be used. ONLY QSOs with OZ7D in JT modes
are valid for the award.
  All the contacts for these two days will be valid for the "EDR 90 Anni-
versary Award". Read more about the award on .

  The purpose of this experimental Web site is to provide 24-7-365 actual
  (REALTIME) band condition information to CW QRPp, QRPe and CW/SSB for
  Contesters interested in increasing their scores. It can also be of
  benefit to other Radio Amateurs to determine band conditions for Nets
  and casual QSO's. This information is NOT based on any software pre-
  dictions or any kind of satellite based readings. It is based on a
  new Ionospheric sounding method called "HF Ionospheric Interferometry"
  which operates very similarly to the PolSAR system used by NASA.

states that he will be active during the ARRL's Field Day on June 24-25th.
ADDED NOTE (from David): "Since V31NJ was just down there in April, most
of the serious grid chasers have already gotten their squares filled in, so
I'm going to focus on SO50, AO85, and FO29, where the passes reach the most
number of people possible. I do plan to try and get to EK68 and EK57 for
at least one pass during the week (to increase my rover totals)." QSL via
his home callsign, direct or LoTW. Look for update via Twitter @KG5CCI.

VP2M, MONTSERRAT. Sigi, DL7DF, and DX Crew will be active as VP2MDL from
Montserrat (NA-103) between November 6-20th. Operators mentioned are
